The Laurie Arms, Haugh of Urr

Update on last review. Sandra and Linda really try to keep the real ale moving and their choices are a LOT more varied and interesting than many in England, let alone D&G! The food quality is variable with chefs turning over fairly frequently, but if you want honest grub served with a reasonable ale, you could do a lot worse. How many pubs do YOU know where there IS no local credible competition?

Great place for a meal or just a good pint! Competent staff who clearly care make a lovely atmosphere. Choice of real ales on Sat included Kelham Pale Rider, Bradfield Farmers and Oakham Stairway to Heaven; therefore only reason it drops a point is that it was short of a dark ale. But the beers on were in fine form, how come this place is not GBG?

We had an evening meal and found the choice excellent. Before we left all the specials had gone! Starters cú5 included less usual options such as belly pork, and the mains, which were generous and not expensive, included a very good duck breast, marlin with prawns, as well as steaks, chicken supreme and rack of lamb.

Seek this pub out if you are in the area (its not far off MI J27).

Like a lot of rural pubs with a modest footfall, I guess the diners represent the main income stream, and the recent change of chef should help here. The range of cask ales are not always to our taste, with predictable Yorkshire and Midlands breweries being maybe a little over represented (we wish they would have a regular Sulwath beer) but we have had some cracking pints here and hope to enjoy many more. Sandra and her staff are friendly and effective, even when they have to multi-task. Do visit the Laurie it is a beacon of light in this part of D&G.
